The Weddington Town Council held a meeting on April 2, 2012 that discussed the option of creating a municipal fire service model in the Town of Weddington. Councilman Daniel Barry made the motion, which ultimately passed and will move the process forward towards establishing a municipal fire service area.
The town currently contracts with Wesley Chapel VFD, Stallings VFD and Providence VFD to provide fire and rescue services within the Town of Weddington. With a municipal fire service model, all three departments will continue to contract with the town, and the individual fire departments will continue to run as independent, standalone departments.
For additional information, refer to a comprehensive letter sent by Mayor Walker Davidson to the residents of Weddington discussing a municipal fire service model.
This past weekend, members from the Providence Volunteer Fire Department assisted the Town of Weddington with an Easter Egg Hunt hosted at the Town Hall. Providence Engine 321 was on-scene and children of all ages had a great time climbing on the equipment, and learning about the apparatus. Check out our Facebook page for more photos from this event.
